JimmyMAC Reads Seddon Statement

During the Coeur d'Alene School Board trustee forum Tuesday, Jimmy McAndrews of the Coeur Group read a prepared closing statement from Trustee Ann Seddon. Seddon, the appointed trustee from Zone 4, declined the Coeur d'Alene Education Partnership invitation to debate challenger Dave Eubanks on Coeur d'Alene TV Channel 19.

Question: Some have criticized the Coeur d'Alene Education Partnership and Coeur Group for allowing Seddon's closing statement to be read when she declined their invitation to participate in the forum. But I see it as another step the two groups took in bending over backward to accommodate Trustee Brent Regan, Bjorn Handeen (who also didn't show) and Seddon. What do you think?
